Glitter Lambs Loose Eyeshadow pigments find another use!

Well, leave it to me to repurpose all things cosmetic! I saw Glitter Lambs new eyeshadows and highlighters, and they are satiny soft and easy to blend, and it occurred to me they might rub nicely into gel polish. I was right! They impart either a metallic, color changing effect, or just add a hint of a little extra something! I used these over gel polish and no wipe top coat. You can see on Jamie’s Glitter Lambs Etsy page or web site how pigmented and highlighted they really are on the skin. Some items may be temporarily sold out. Let’s take a look at my swatches! Remember, these are actually meant for eyeshadow and highlighters, but work well as nail pigments!

Glitter Lambs Bioluminescent loose eyeshadow rubbed into a 30-second cured no wipe top coat, over Madam Glam Tomboy gel polish! Just…wow!

GlitterLambs 24 Karat Eyeshadow, Gold Loose Eyeshadow Pot. Shown swatched over white gel polish on left side shows a true gold metallic look and over black on the right gives a metallic goldish green effect. “24 Karat” is a gold loose eyeshadow pigment.

Aquarium Eyeshadow Pot by Glitter Lambs. “Aquarium” is a sheer shimmery light green with a light gold shift loose eyeshadow pigment.
Here it is used as a pigment over white gel polish, is much more iridescent than pictured! I also tried it over black but the effect is too subtle to capture.

Arctic (with Blue Flash) Loose Eyeshadow/Highlighter Pot
Glitter Lambs “Arctic” is a white loose eyeshadow pigment that has a blue flash when applied to the skin. Can be used as a highlighter as well. And of course, being the part-time alchemist that I am, I tried it over black and white gel polish! Over white it has a delicate blue shimmer and over black it’s a gorgeous blue metallic!

Glitter Lambs Buttercream (Gold Flash) Loose Eyeshadow/Highlighter Pot. “Buttercream” is a white loose eyeshadow pigment that has a gold flash when applied to the skin. Can be used as a highlighter as well. Applied here over white on left (in the right light gives a delicate gold flash pearl), and over black a deep antique gold metallic.

Classy is a creme colored with gold flash eyeshadow that can also be used as a highlighter. Here I applied it like pigment over white gel polish (with no wipe topcoat light cured for 30 seconds as with all these) and you can’t really see in this photo, but in light and full sun you can see a soft golden sparkle. Beautiful!

Foxy Eyeshadow Pot, Loose Eyeshadow Pot, a Deep Reddish berry shade. I used it over black polish here but can also be used for a lighter effect over white!

Glow loose eyeshadow by Glitter Lambs is a dreamy golden shifting pigment, and over black polish becomes a coppery bronze!

Glitter Lambs “Licorice” Glitter Eyeshadow Pot, Holographic Loose glitter at GlitterLambs.com. Glitter Lambs “Licorice” is a black holographic .008 cosmetic glitter that has a slight rainbow prism shift to it. Sprinkled over black topped with gel topcoat before curing for a dimensional textured holo black look!

Phantom (Purple Flash) Highlighter Pot by Glitter Lambs. “Phantom” is a white loose eyeshadow pigment that has a purple flash when applied to the skin. Can be used as a highlighter as well. Over black becomes a metallic deep purple!

Platinum Silver Loose Eye shadow Pot. Glitter Lambs “Platinum” is a silver loose eyeshadow pigment. Glitter Lambs Loose Eyeshadow Pigments can be applied with the finger for a more intense color or you can use an eyeshadow sponge-tip applicator. This richly pigmented silver is sure to be a head turner. It’s A BEAUTY! Amazing soft metallic silver over white or black polish!

Glitter Lambs “Zombie Apocalypse” Glitter Eyeshadow Pot
by GlitterLambs.com. Glitter Lambs “Zombie Apocalypse” is a black glitter powder in a .002 size. This is an extremely small tiny cut glitter and almost like a powder.. You will only see the rainbow prism shift in this glitter in natural/outdoor sunlight.
If it’s overcast outside then the glitter will look like just a black glitter with no holo.
Indoors this glitter will look black. ONLY THE SUNLIGHT OUTSIDE WILL BRING OUT THE SCREAMS IN THESE ZOMBIES! An edgey textured effect sprinkled over any wet topcoat! If you use gel topcoat, sprinkle on wet then cure. Over regular topcoat, sprinkle over wet, and optionally top again with matte or glossy topcoat.

SquareHue 07.15 1960s box review…It’s really hip to be square!

I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things with my swatching and blogging. I managed to grab a few hours before the big move to swatch these and a few others. For some reason, my swatch “non-dominate” hand’s middle digit wants to keep chipping, just millimeters at a time, still frustrating! But now that all the packing, painting, etc is done for now and we are in Texas, my nails can breathe a sigh of relief and I can allow them to regain their original length. Sorry for the odd lengths. I couldn’t bare to trim them any further. 😉

I’m excited I got the Decades Collection July box, 1960, before we left. These three polish colors are wonderful for summertime. Let’s get right to the groovy images!

This month's The Decades Collection box featuring the 1960s is far out! The in-your-face fuscia Tune In is a satiny fuscia neon. It dries matte but looks amazing alone or with topcoat. Same with the highlighter neon Turn On. It's a brilliant 2-coater matte, and no white undies required. The purple/blue duochrome with brilliant blue flash shimmer makes this set complete, and oh, so glossy!

Let’s start with Tune In, a neon pink matte.

Tune In is one of those brilliant deep neon pinks that make you love, well, pink! Hard to tell by my photo here, but I put a coat of clear topcoat on the ring finger, but even matte, this color jumps off the nail.

Turn On is also matte, but it’s a brilliant neon yellow/green and I LOVE it! The photo makes it look more yellow, but on the nail it has a bit of green cast.

Turn On is a matte SUPER highlighter yellow/green that can make the most pale look tan! Wow, my camera couldn't even handle the brightness. Great formula, no white undies needed.

And last but not least, Drop Out. This glossy duochrome is opaque in 2-3 coats, and oh my, that blue flash is crazy!

Drop Out is a fab duochrome purple/blue glossy with brilliant blue flashes. Two coats here!
